Encouraging diverse groups with a passion for STEM to dream big and pursue their goals through scholarships, events, and education.
The Green Girls STEM Foundation has officially awarded both of our scholarships for the 2021 application cycle!
The winner of our FIRST Robotics Diversity in STEM scholarship is Sahana (Left). Sahana is a freshman at Northwestern University. She increases diversity in STEM through her work on Crimson Classroom a program that she created to bring robotics into K-12 classrooms and a non-profit she created, Computer Science for Kids, to teach students about programming, cybersecurity, and presentation skills. Sahana also created trilingual FIRST Lego League guides for students in Uruguay.
The winner of our Giversity in STEM scholarship is Brittney (Right). Brittney is a senior at New Rochelle High School who created the New Rochelle United Science Exploration mentoring program. This program paired students with mentors and challenged them to create a STEM-based project. In addition to coordinating the program, Brittney mentored two students. At the end of the summer, the students were given the opportunity to present their projects at a science fair.

The foundation is starting to prepare for the 2021-2022 scholarship season. Please consider contributing to the success of future STEM professionals. Last year the foundation raised $2300 through virtual fundraisers including GoFundMe and various social media platforms. We look forward to doing more virtual and in-person fundraising events this year, following CDC and local guidelines. We are always accepting donations via PayPal and our Redbubble Store is open.
